adVancEducation: MOOCs raise questionable practices | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it

How big is a MOOC? What is the importance of a cohort in a MOOC? Where is the center? What is its optimal time frame? Can participants dip in and dip out whenever they feel like it? in which case can they dip in and dip out over a number of years? or can they band together informally in a space that's not called a MOOC? Would that then still be called a MOOC?

SLMOOC 2014

SLMOOC 2014 | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it

Hola, a todos! La invitación es para que participen en SLmooc 2014. Un mooc en Second Life. Es en Inglés y en Español. El tema central es aprender y conectarse en línea para aprender y enseñar en mundos virtuales. En especial en Second Life.

Educadores de diferentes partes del mundo estarán compartiendo sus experiencias en mundos virtuales Y cómo podemos utilizarlos en situaciones de enseñanza mixta (blended learning) Donde combinamos los elementos en línea con la experiencia cara a cara en el salón de clase tradicional.

Se contará con la ayuda de todos y se ofrecerán tutoriales, clases y tours a los principiantes. La idea es conectarse y funcionar como comunidad de práctica. Las sesiones ocurrirán de manera asincrónica (moodle) y sincrónica en (WizIQ & Second Life) con grabaciones, ademas de Google Drive, YouTube, Vimeo,pinterest, Facebook y Twitter.

 

Tenemos tres areas de mayor interaccion: El area de curso en WizIQ, Nuestro centro en Second Life, y Moodle for Teachers (M4T)Moodle website. En el curso en WIzIQ tendremos sesiones en vivo y grabadas, así como también los tutoriales (courseware) las discusiones diarias en (coursefeed).

 

A diferencia de los cursos tradicionales basados en el dictado de cursos de contenidos, el SLmooc se basa en el aprendizaje reflexivo, activo de compartir, conectarse y colaborar. El logro para el participante es el de aprender  a través de conexiones significativas en la interacción social.

Para recibir su certificado, se requiere que el participante lleve un record de su participación en un wiki o blog o sitio web u otro ambiente que sea de su agrado. 

 

Aca tienen las diferentes areas y herramientas que tenemos para conectarnos y aprender de manera activa y significativa.

 

Twitter Hashtag:  #SLMOOC2014

List of Presentations | WizIQ SL Area | Moodle Course Area | YouTube Playlist | Second Life Area | Group on Facebook

 

Que no les de miedo el inglés. tenemos muchos participantes y organizadores que hablan español. Asi, como presentaciones en español. De todas maneras, ustedes pueden utilizar google translate y sonreir.

Un abrazo a todos y les esperamos. Cualquier duda, pueden contactar a las Drs. Nellie Deutsch, Doris Molero, and Nancy Zingrone

Outer Space: "A Beautiful, Beautiful World," The Earth Song by StoryBots - YouTube

LYRICS:

STORYBOT 1
(Looking at controls)
We are currently orbiting Planet Earth.

STORYBOT 2
(Listening to headphones attached to controls)
I am picking up some noises...sounds like... cool music...

CHORUS
Such a beautiful...such a beautiful...such a beautiful...
Beautiful world.

EARTH
I'm the Earth, and for what it's worth
25 thousand miles is my girth
I've got more than 7 billion people living on me
All across my amazing geography
Check out my mountains, valleys, trees so tall
And I've got lakes, rivers and waterfalls
Volcanoes, craters, swamps with alligators
Tropical islands at my equator
The North and South poles have lots of ice
Only Polar Bears say, "This weather's nice!"
I've got so much land, yeah, I'm so immense
I've got 7 - (STORYBOT 2: "Seven!") - 7 different continents
North and South America, Europe, Asia
Africa, Antarctica, and Australia
But the biggest thing,
Everybody can see
Is that I gotta lotta water, all over me!
I have oceans with lobsters, whales, otters
Three quarters of me is covered in water
I orbit the sun - (THE SUN: "I'm so hot") - that's his line
And the moon orbits me - (THE MOON: "It's my time to shine")
I'm filled with life, both big and small
The most beautiful planet of all.

CHORUS
Such a beautiful...such a beautiful...such a beautiful...
beautiful world.

STORYBOT 1
It is the home to every boy and girl

STORYBOT 2
It's a beautiful, beautiful world. I'm getting homesick.

STORYBOT 2
Me too. Computer, take us home.
